Review: Betrothal (Queen's Honor, Tales of Lady Guinevere: #1) by Mande Matthews

Lady Guinevere wants to marry for love, and intends to fight for this right as the kings of the neighbouring realms fight literally over her - for her hand in marriage brings with it land and riches. King Melwas arrives to take her hand by force, and it falls to King Arthur to save the day, although it is a certain Sir Lancelot that captures Guinevere's attention. Lancelot is unsurprisingly dark, handsome and brooding - the perfect hero - whilst Arthur with his 'halo' of blonde hair is the epitome of flattery and charm, with more than just a touch of arrogance. However it seems that Arthur's intentions are honourable, and Guinevere has an important decision to make, one that will affect not only her life but the lives of her people...

I have always loved anything to do with the King Arthur legend, so was very excited to spot this book for free on the kindle store! With a gorgeous cover and an interesting spin on the age old love triangle between Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot, this is a novella that I would definitely recommend. Betrothal is part one of two of the Queen's Honor series and I can't wait to find out what happens next. 5/5 stars.

This book is available for FREE on Amazon and was read as part of the Clean Out Your e-Reader Challenge 2014.
